I have had a bad week. I won't bore with all the details but in that torrential downpour last Sunday night - at about 10. 30 pm - I had a flood where the water came in through my Conservatory/Craftroom roof.
I suppose likening it to Niagara Falls is a slight exaggeration but it felt like it at the time. It has taken almost all the week to dry out and to rescue and de-pong the carpet but we are almost there.
I was supposed to be having my first apres lock-down guests for lunch on Wednesday but I had to cancel. I couldn't have coped. That made matters so much worse.
In the last few evenings I have sat and stitched to help me relax and I am pleased with the two cards that I have just now finished.
|Stitch and Do Cards Only - Set 50|
|Stitch and Do cards Only - Set 19|
The images are both Tattered Lace die-cuts. The teacup I die-cut myself but the bird was a purchase from E bay.
I have tried out some new threads that I purchased recently by Mettler. Beautiful colours and the perfect weight for sewing on card but they can knot easily if you use too long a piece in your needle.
I love both of the patterns but I think the second one best. I have used it before and bought a second set so that I could do it again. I might even buy a third set.
